Cable VS Fiber

Cable VS Fiber


The type of internet connection you use has a direct impact on everything you do. If you are a business, it will impact how your workers perform. It will also affect your bottom line. It could even affect how you and your clients relate to one another.

A lot of small business owners don’t have the time to really focus on making a good choice. They are too busy worrying about other things. At the end of the day, their hastiness ends up costing them in a big way.

You can avoid this mistake. Here is breakdown between two of the biggest options out there. See for yourself which option is good enough for you.


CABLE: This one is always offered through a cable provider. You must have a modem. You must also have it all professionally done. Don’t attempt this by yourself. The price is usually a bit higher; however, if you get something in a bundle, you might get some type of discount.


This one takes a bit longer to install. You can have a professional do it or do it yourself. It’s usually better to have someone else do it. It will save time and money. The main difference between this and the cable is the cable itself. With the first one, the cable is already there. With fiber, you have to run a cable. These cables are as thin as human hair. If you do decide to install the cables yourself, speak to someone first. You might not have the service contract coverage.


CABLE: It’s okay, but I’m going to be honest. If you live in an area where outages frequently happen, this might not be your best option. It’s best to have some sort of backup plan. Like an option B. I say this because, it’s going to happen.

FIBER: This one might be more idea with reliability. The conductor is made of glass. Which means, it’s not going to pick up any of the electricity. If something does go out, not much will be affected. You can pretty much carry on, business as usual.


CABLE: This one is readily available, no matter where you are. The only drawback is you have to have cable television. If you don’t have the access, then it won’t work.

FIBER: This one is not so easily accessible. That is changing, though. As we speak, more areas are offering it. It’s going to take time. The choice is yours. If you really want fiber and it’s not in your area, how long are you able to wait.


CABLE: Cable has a reputation of being fast, depending on your plan. The only drawback is the latency. There tends to be delays with certain packages, depending no where you live.

FIBER: FIOS is the real deal. It might be small, but it packs a lot. Many have said that FIOS is even faster then regular cable. Which means, you can download and upload multiple things. You can do this all without performance being affected. Cable doesn’t even give you this.

Each has their own pros and cons. The choice is yours.

Apple Watch Launch Day Explained

Apple Watch Launch Day Explained

Today is an exciting day for all the Apple Watch fans that were able to pre-order their devices. Customers were able to pre-order their Apple Watches through Apple’s online store on April 10, 2015. Apple’s newest personal computer comes in two sizes, 38mm, 42mm, and three collections: the Apple Watch Sport, the Apple Watch, and the Apple Watch Edition.

The Apple Watch Sport is made with an aluminum design, the Apple Watch is designed with a stainless steel design, and the Apple Watch Edition has a gold flavor. The Apple Watch Sport is available at an introductory price of $349, while the Apple Watch Edition tops out at a whopping $17K.

The Apple Watch goes on sale today in these nine countries:

  • U.S.
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • China
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • UK

The Apple Watch project began in 2011, and was code-named gizmo. The Apple Watch runs on WatchOS which is a watered down version of IOS. Instead of the normal home screen that’s available on the iPhones and iPads, the Apple Watch runs a carousel of round icons that change in size and position as the user scrolls around the screen.

The Watch uses a digital crown that’s used for scrolling and zooming and a force press to bring up even more actions. There’s also a button underneath the crown that can be double-clicked to go into the Apple Pay menu.

Now that the Apple Watch launch is in full swing, Apple has released a series of commercials demonstrating how the Watch can assist the user completing their daily chores. The commercials demonstrate the Watch’s ability to serve as a fitness tracker, provide turn-by-turn navigation, perform music playback, and serves reminders and notifications.

There are over 3000 apps in Apple’s App Store that are available for download to use with the Apple Watch. Many of the iPhone’s apps are already Watch-compatible. Apps such as: ESPN, CNN, AP Mobile, Twitter, Instagram, Flipboard, Yahoo Weather, Evernote, and the New York Times, just to name a few.

If a user already has a particular Watch-compatible app on their iPhone, then purchases an Apple Watch, then the app will be automatically available for use on the Watch. There will be no need to download that particular app again.

Analysts have estimated that 957,000 people have pre-ordered an Apple Watch. So far, the device has proven to be extremely popular. We’ll just have to wait a few weeks to see what customers think of their new toy after it’s been out in the wild for a little while.
